HOW TO ATTACH NEW SKEIN OF LOOP YARN
Attaching a new skein is super easy.
At the end of a row, simply insert the first loop of the new skein into the last loop of your row.
Then continue knitting the row as before.
To remove the tails, simply cut them off with a scissor making sure not to cut the loops.
The following photo shows how project looks after removing the tails:
NOTE: Some tutorials say to weave the tail into the project, but I found this is not necessary as long as you are careful when cutting the tail.
